traffic lights and traffic signs
hurt my eyes the stereo's down
i jerk a tear out of my face
eyes are shut my foot's down
it's midnight i'm on my way home
this is the last time i'm on this road

curtains drawn
verdict's in wondering what could have been

in my head i say goodbye
to all my friends and to my town
let go of the wheel and close my eyes
i wonder what will happen now
i'm sorry i'm sorry mother
for leaving you all alone
curtains drawn
verdict's in hope is gone for everything

curtains drawn
verdict's in wondering what could have been

i'm way too scared to go through
i can't explain myself
i think the same thing every night
on the way home
it's all i ever needed
i don't want to take my life tonight
i just want to see if there's alright

    General Commentsince no one has put a meaning on a single swn song. ill take the pleasure of doing the first.

    i always presumed this song was about suicide (some obvious references in the song title).

    at a show. jake introduced the song as "this is about coincidences. if you ever have a coincidence - act on it or you will regret it"
